Smoked Bacon and Tomato Lasagne

One very yummy frugal lasagne recipe which is perfect for the weekend! There's no beef mince in this, just a smoked bacon and tomato sauce, which cuts the costs down considerably. It also means preparation is a little quicker as there's no need to simmer the tomato sauce for as long as you would a ragu. Have a good weekend whatever you're up to. I'm planning on lots of gardening so fingers crossed the weather holds. I'll be back on Sunday with my weekly meal plan.

Creamy Butternut Squash Pasta

Sorry for the quietness around these parts. I've had a horrible flu type virus since I got back from Disneyland Paris which completely knocked me out (I blame the recycled air on the plane). Thankfully, I've woken up feeling lots better today so hopefully I'm over the worst of it! The last time I felt so rough was when I had Swine Flu about 6 years ago. Not nice! Anyway, on to the recipe...... This is a beautiful vegetarian pasta dish but was enjoyed by all the meat lovers too! The butternut squash makes a lovely silky smooth sauce for the pasta, with the sage, garlic and parmesan giving it lots of extra flavour. This is a pasta dish I could eat over and over again. The dish does take quite a long time to make as you have to roast the butternut squash first, but I promise you wont be disappointed. Perhaps one to try at the weekend?
